GREEN FIRE explores the life and legacy of famed conservationist Aldo Leopold (A Sand County Almanac) and his land ethic philosophy. 




"This beautiful, moving, and inspiring film reminds us that the man we most remember for the land ethic was also a father of wilderness protection, ecological restoration, and our whole consciousness about what he called our hardest task-the ability to live on a piece of land without spoiling it."

Amory B. Lovins, Co-founder and Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute

"GREEN FIRE...should be mandatory viewing for any student in a natural resource field, indeed for anyone who values nature, wilderness, and wildlife...This film is a fine tribute to Leopold's legacy...GREEN FIRE will contribute to people's appreciation of this amazing man and his role in the history of the conservation movement."
Dr. Michael Hutchins, Executive Director/CEO, The Wildlife Society

"Aldo Leopold was the most important American environmental thinker of the 20th century, and GREEN FIRE is a radiant portrait of Leopold's life and work. But its more important accomplishment is to suggest that Leopold may just be the most important environmental thinker for the 21st century as well."
Paul S. Sutter, Associate Professor of History, University of Colorado-Boulder, Author, Driven Wild: How the Fight against Automobiles Launched the Modern Wilderness Movement

"It takes viewers to the places that inspired, transformed, and nudged the author's doctrine into something that ties the concept of a land ethic to each of us. And into something that still offers hope and invites action."
Pamela Biery, Sierra Club
